The CSF Pulse Pressure as Indicator of Intracranial Elastance: The Role of the Pulsatile Change in Cerebral Blood Volume
The CSF pulse pressure (CSFPP) is determined by two factors: 1. the shape of the intracranial volume-pressure curve, as described by the elastance coefficient, E1, and 2. the magnitude of the pulsatile change in cerebral blood volume (ΔVb). Consequently, analogous to the volume-pressure response, the CSFPP can be used as a measure of intracranial elastance as long as ΔVb remains constant.
